Wintergreen skiing is the best it can be right now

For the second time in a single winter season, Wintergreen Resort (located at nearly 4,000 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains) is in the eye of the pending storm.

On December 18, Wintergreen received 31 inches - the greatest accumulation in the “Blizzard of 2009” or “Snowpocalypse” as it was dubbed.

Now, another winter storm is bearing down on the Shenandoah Valley and once again, Wintergreen is predicted to be in the eye of the storm, with two to three feet of snow predicted on the mountain starting early Friday morning (February 5) and continuing into Saturday.

“Wintergreen skiing is the best it can be right now,” says Wintergreen Resort’s General Manager Hank Thiess. “It’s groomed, has perfect coverage and depth – and the setting is beautiful. It’s virtually a winter wonderland.”

Twice in a season? It’s absolute joy to skiers who have had to deal with season total snowfalls of 12-21 inches during the past three years. To date, Wintergreen has had over 64 inches and 18 already this week.

Resort officials are cautioning skiers to monitor road and highway conditions before heading up the mountain this weekend. “There will be plenty of snow and excellent conditions for quite some time to come,” said Thiess. “Safety is our first concern.”
